Tomorrow the L.A. City Council is set to vote on proposed tightened penalties for taxicab drivers at LAX who discriminate against riders based on race.
This, after a recent undercover investigation by two black officers who were denied taxi rides 20 percent of the time at LAX. That investigation was spurred by an essay written by ESPN analyst Doug Glanville, "Why I Still Get Shunned by Taxi Drivers." What has your cab-catching experience been like at LAX? Have you ever felt that you were discriminated against by an LAX cab driver?
Do you agree with adopting tightened penalties, or is this an overreach?
